• Special Events

    Music can play a key role in productions and events.



Music often plays a unique role at special events, either as a soundtrack to a performance or production or as the backdrop for dancing, mingling and creating the right atmosphere.

If you are holding a special event or production using recorded music, you need the permission of the owners of the music you use. You can obtain this permission by applying for a Special Event Licence.

This licence applies for ticketed events and events that are by invitation only with no admission fee.

Ticketed Event 1.65% of Gross Sums Paid for Admission x Music Use Percentage, subject to a minimum fee of $75.00 + GST
Event with No Admission Fee 2% of Gross Expenditure on Performers at the Event, subject to a minimum fee of $75.00 + GST
